The Raconteurs - Broken Boy Soldier Single Review
Broken Boy Soldier
With their debut record just being denied an entry at the top of the charts upon its release back in May, it is clear to see that The Raconteurs is more than just a side project for its best-known members, Jack White and Brendan Benson.
The third single on these shores is also the title track of the bandâs album and begins in moody fashion with a heavy rhythm section. With a hint of folk styling, it plods along passively and is extremely far removed from the infectious âSteady, As She Goesâ. The bursts of guitar and piano donât provide enough excitement, and while certainly not terrible, even repeat listens fail to see it grow in stature. The b-side âYellow Sunâ is also largely forgettable.
